to identify the n.r.a. as the far right and to separate them. nerpped, the right is more out of step than he is -- in other words, the right is more out of step than he is. >> if you look at public opinion broadly, it seems there's been a shift in the country. thrls been a 10% shift to the right amongst the republican party. so you have seen, it's true, a republican party that has shifted to the right. barack obama has managed through issues like gun control and the right through organizations like the n.r.a. to paint them as out of step with the mainstream of america more successfully than the right has managed to depict the president as being out of step with the mainstream of america. chris: i want to ask you about the cover of a magazine, has the country moved more towards the gun control position or not because of the horror at newtown? >> i think they've moved some to that position. the n.r.a. still has a stranglehold, but the president can use the extremism of the n.r.a., who are acting like a bunch of crazies that's days to help sell the rest of his agenda. chris: this is too far out
from the nra and he voted for reducing the waiting time from three days to one bag. do you think read a tipping point, that there will be some kind of a seismic change? >> yeah, i do. since the topic is politics and then to add that a lot of people widely credited in 1883 crandell for the reason republicans took the majority for the first time in 40 years. so it really has a lot to do with the politics. i'm very grateful to be at the university of chicago. just another know. only to chicago which sent and called the partisan bipartisan with david axelrod and rahm emanuel. but that's a whole different story. >> we had to come back as bipartisan and this issue. >> if you go so far to the right, come back to the left. but i think the conversation has changed since the unannotated disco stu i don't care whether it's begun discussion or pistol discussion, at this moment in time you have republican and i happen to be one of them with the nra that would be more than happy that a lot of republicans are more than happy to begin to have the conversation about guns. but it has to be the right co
is coming straight from the nra play book which wayne lapierre actually called for in his address after sandy hook. >> if it's crazy to call for putting police in our schools to protect our children, then call me crazy. i'll tell you what the american people -- i think the american people think it's crazy not to do it. it's the one thing that would keep people safe. >> jennifer: actually looks like the american people do think he's crazy, or at least that his ideas are. there was a new ppp poll out there that finds that just 41% of the voters support the nra's proposal to arm teachers and it also found that the nra's support itself has eroded since lapierre's press conference. you might think that sounds pretty good, but that's down a full ten points since the week before his press conference. so maybe their struggle hold on our gun laws is loosening, and will continue to if leaders like dan malloy keep standing up to the gun lobby. >> freedom is not a handgun on the hip of every teacher and security should not mean a guard posted outside of every classroom. that

the n.r.a. and the white house as a concern. but today there was new controversy over the n.r.a.'s new practice range app for i-pads and i-phones, recommended for ages 4 and up. all of this has gun and ammunition sales and attendance at gun shows have grown dramatically in the month since newtown. president obama addressed that phenomenon at his news conference yesterday. >> those who oppose any common sense gun control or gun safety measures have a pretty effective way of ginning up fear on the part of gun owners that somehow the federal government is about to take all your guns away. there's probably an economic element to that. it obviously is good for business. >> woodruff: the president unveils his proposals tomorrow morning. he will be join by children who wrote him letters after the newtown attack. >> brown: we'll have two views of the gun >> brown: we'll have two views of the gun debate coming up, from delaware governor jack markell and n.r.a. president david keene; plus, no more red ink in california's budget; and a record number of military suicides. but first, the other news

be an understatement. with opposition that goes well beyond congress. a new nra tv ad calls the president an elitist hypocrite for being skeptical about armed guards in schools.while the secret service protects his two daughters. and some law enforcement officials - including this kentucky sheriff -- say they will refuse to comply with any laws they feel are unconstitutional. but the ground may still be shifting in the president's favor. a new cnn poll says 55% of americans 'do' want stricter gun control. some of the other executive orders. include one that would allow communities to hire more schoold another that d require federal law enforcement to trace all recovered guns. the n-r-a released its response in a commercial. grant lodes joins us with more on what the white house is ripping as a deeply personal attack. and the nra is referencing the president's daughters in this online ad that the n- r-a pre-emptively released yesterday. the white house pushing back, issuing a stern response to that ad: saying in part: "most americans agree that a president's children should not be used as pawns in a

anything about the nra or will your efforts simply to be resist resist resist? >> well we're very interested in answering the question of how do we make schools safer for our children. as you know from the very beginning after this happened we've argued that we need two things, one, we need to get at the root of the problem, which is the broken and devastatingly broken mental health care system we have in this country because most of these people all of them in fact are people with severe mental problems. secondly we need to provide security, because we can never predict how one of these people is going to act. most of the proposals that have to do with firearms are simply feel-good proposals that have been tried in the past and won't work or won't have any real impact. the real question that needs to be addressed is not what do we do about guns it's what do we do to make our children safe. >> david, we have a new cbs news/"new york times" poll out this morning that shows 85% of nra households support background checks on all gun buyers. are you out of tou
't think any of those things work. >> a confident n.r.a. president said on cnn they will win. >> do you think you have enough support on capitol hill to keep an assault weapons ban from passing? >> right now we do. >> after sandy hook elementary school, polls showed a majority of americans favored stricter gun control. that may not translate into action on capitol hill. nearly 300 members of congress have an a rating from the n.r.a. for opposition to all gun control measures. with just the threat of stricter laws looming, many americans are rushing to stock up on weapons and ammunition. as the gun control debate heats up in statehouses and in washington, the still grieving parents are debating what does do with sandy hook elementary school. >> knocking down the school is knocking down the memories of the children. >> knock it down and make it sacred ground. >> the white house has signaled if the congress does not act the president willutive ode enraging gun rights advocates. >> developing news: the first president george bush is out of the houston hospital where he has been since novem
